Chapter: The Special Case of Jerusalem--A Discussion

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.43991


Chapter Four addresses the role of Jerusalem in interregional interactions based on biblical, historical, and archaeological evidence. The case of Jerusalem demands special attention because of the contrast between the centrality of the city in the biblical worldview and the very limited epigraphic and material evidence that can be dated to the early Iron Age.
